Introduction to Interdisciplinary Study Combining Fluid Mechanics and Chemistry
Luminescent Imaging and Chemical Flow Control
ME-EM Graduate Seminar Speaker Series
Hirotaka Sakaeu, PhD
University of Notre Dame
Abstract: This presentation introduces an interdisciplinary study on experimental fluid mechanics and chemistry. Two columns of research topics are presented: luminescent imaging and chemical flow control. By the cross linkage of the luminescent imaging and chemical flow control, Dr. Sakaue’s interdisciplinary studies have covered a broad spectrum of research initiatives including fluid dynamics, flow control, green energy/environmental engineering, and biomedical engineering. In this presentation, basics of luminescent imaging and chemical flow control are given. Some applications in these research columns are also included in the presentation to highlight some challenges in these research columns.
Bio: Dr. Hirotaka Sakaue is an associate professor at Department of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, University of Notre Dame. He had spent over ten years at Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) as a researcher before joining Notre Dame. He received his BS in Biomolecular Engineering from Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan, in 1996, and MS and PhD in Aeronautics and Astronautics, Purdue University in 1999 and 2003, respectively.
